Shade (Japanese: シェイド Shade) is a character introduced in the Fire Emblem Cipher trading card game. She is a dark mage from Nohr. She is friends with the Hoshidans Emma, a sky knight, and Yuzu, a samurai. Her first appearance as a character in a mainline Fire Emblem series title is as a playable downloadable character in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Fire Emblem Cipher

Role

Shade's portrait in the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) column

While simply a trading card character, she, alongside Emma, serves as an introductory character on the Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) website. They are both characters made for the trading card game istelf. They both have their own column on the site where they discuss various aspects and events concerning the development of the trading card game, with the first one being an introduction to the new TCG as a whole. Five other characters have since joined the column.

While she is from Nohr, she does not make any appearances in any of Fire Emblem Fates's various campaigns or downloadable content at the time of writing.

Shade is currently featured on eleven cards in Fire Emblem Cipher. Additionally, she has been featured on two April Fools' prank cards.
